You let her escape through your fingers like hot sand because you just couldn’t get over yourself or your ego. She stayed for a while, for far too long actually, when you didn’t deserve it. You were lucky and you took her for granted. You squandered something far too worthy of you. All you saw were the things she hated most about herself. Wasn’t that enough? But no, you had to make it worse. You had to be that guy. And now she’s gone. You lost the best thing that ever happened to you. The sad part is, you may never realize it. But she won’t be sad. No, while you’ll probably end up miserable, she’ll end up happy, with him, the guy who defied society to love her like she deserved. The guy who only saw the way her eyes lit up when she felt most alive. The guy who relished in the moments when she forgot herself and became utterly carefree, dazzled by life, head back, laughing genuinely, dancing by herself, unable to contain her joy. The guy who was captivated by her when she was at her best and just sat with her when she was at her worst, not because she was broken but because she was being made. See, he knew this, intimately, and saw through to her finale. But you? You were shortsighted; you didn’t have the vision. So you lost her when she was only just beginning.
